Performance On 3

Thursday 11 March
7.00-9.15pm BBC RADIO 3

The Orchestra Of The Age Of Enlightenment performs part of its Beethoven Symphony Cycle, which continues throughout the year. For tonight's concert the period instrument ensemble is led by Hungarian conductor Ivan Fischer in Beethoven's Symphony No. 2 and Symphony No. 3 (Eroica).

Beethoven's second symphony overflows with humour and vitality, even though he was struggling with his increasing deafness at the time. Some of his contemporaries found it a challenge but today, with the benefit of hindsight, it can be seen as forward-looking, while also acknowledging its classical Viennese heritage.

With the now-famous Eroica symphony Beethoven really was breaking new ground. However much it owes to his initial admiration of Napoleon, Beethoven was writing on a grandiose scale, injecting the work with a sense of heroic breadth and drama.

Can't Connect, Won't Connect

Thursday 11 March
9.00-9.30pm BBC RADIO 4

Chris Bowlby investigates why so many people are not embracing the internet and digital technology – and why this poses a huge challenge for public policy – in a revised repeat of a programme first broadcast last August.

New technology, digital networks and new communications are transforming every aspect of life and linking everyone in new ways. Institutions from Government down are keen to encourage – or, some would say, coerce – everyone into embracing this new world.

But what about the refuseniks? Almost a quarter of the adult population still don't use the internet and aren't connected to broadband. It's a startling figure – more than 10 million people in Britain over the age of 15. For some, it's because they can't afford or don't understand the new technology. For others, refusing to join in is a conscious choice. There are signs that many of those still not connected are going to be harder and harder to convert.

But how long can the refuseniks hold out given the momentum behind the "digital revolution"? The programme explores a looming crisis in public policy as more and more institutions – as well as commercial operations – seek to move all their services online to save money.
